- Requiring a criminal history and background check before a blackbelt is given? (what group, agency or body could require this? is there any one group that "authenticates" or formalizes black belt ranking?) Perhaps we could get the "big name schools" (ie Gracie Barra, Gracie Humaita, Alliance etc) to voluntarily agree to this?
- Requiring a criminal history free of felonies, or felonies involving violent crime, to be a registered coach bringing competitors to IBJJF tourneys? to be a competitor in IBJJF tourneys?
- Stripping Nick and Mateo's belt rank? medals and titles from IBJJF? (upon conviction of course)
- In the future-- if you have a felony, or a felony involving violence-- your prior medals and titles will be taken back?
- [insert your idea here.]

Banning? stripping titles? and future background checks?
What do you think would be appropriate?
